Eddie has a lift on the side of our house for when he is not able to walk up the stairs. It has become a fun past time of Gracie and Luke to ride up and down on it. They will walk in front of him and out the side door. They'll slowly walk out onto the platform and hold onto the rail. Then, they scream with delight as he pushes the button to go down. They are very well trained and always safe. It's so cute to watch them with their Daddy.
The other day, Grandma and Grandpa took the courageous step of taking the babies for a walk. A walk. Not in the cars, not in the wagon, not in the stroller. Grandma, Grandpa, Gracie and Luke walking down the street. They had a great time and the best part was that they came back tired!
As they grow older, Gracie and Luke are becoming more and more independent. They still like their hugs, to sit on Mommy's lap, to cuddle with Daddy. But they like to do things for themselves. The lift is a great way for them to get to be big kids and still be supervised by two (anxious) parents.

And just cause they're incredibly cute, here are some pics of Gracie's new hair cut:
Thanks, Grandma for the great haircut!
